Dr Seuss by Philip Nel

Book Description

Dr Seuss: American Icon celebrates one of the most influential authors and artists of the 20th century: Theodor Seuss Geisel, best known as 'Dr Seuss'. Dr Seuss's ascendance from children's author to American icon confirms that his cultural significance rests not just with the beginning reader, but with the scholar, the artist, and the poet. Seuss's Beginner Books (starting with The Cat in the Hat in 1957) have obscured the enormous range of his contributions to American literature. Similarly, his art actually covers a range of styles, including Surrealism, Art Nouveau, and Cubism. Bringing to light the adult perspective behind the children's writer, Philip Nel also examines Seuss's lesser-known works. The book also features the most comprehensive Seuss bibliography ever produced, documenting his prestigious output.
